Your Purpose In Life

“ Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. [1 Cor. 10:31]

What is your purpose in life? Where do you find satisfaction and fulfillment in life? If it is in anything less than the glory of God, we will be frustrated and have a sense of emptiness.

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” Rev. 4:11

Your Purpose In Life

We were created to bring glory to God. It is the very core of our being. Sin pulls us away from our purpose and seeks our own glory. Our lives, our marriages, our jobs, our families, our very existence, even our deaths are to bring glory to God. We are to line up all that we are, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to bring glory to God.

How do we live and die for the glory of God as our purpose in life? We are to order our lives according to the Word of God. As we live with unswerving faith and obedience to the Word of God, God receives glory. When we are tempted to do things our own way, but instead choose God’s way, God receives glory. When we go through the valley of the shadow of death and still remain faithful to God, God receives glory. We will never find the true joy, satisfaction and purpose of life until will do everything for the glory of God. Our entire motivation should be to uphold the glory of God.

It is easy to loose sight of this. It is easy to get wrapped up in this world. I read just recently [2006] of a ‘Christian’ founder of a well-known activist organization in the US who abandoned his wife and children for a woman 22 years his junior. He then declared bankruptcy, raised money from his followers, and bought a house valued at almost half a million dollars in a state where bankruptcy courts cannot touch a person’s home. It is sad to read of people who go after their own glory.

In less dramatic ways, we are all tempted to live for our own glory, seeking our own advantage. We must keep the glory of God front and center of everything we do. We must follow the example of our Master, Who laid aside His own will in order to glorify God in His death. Whether we live or die, let our heart be to glorify God.
